Testing InformationSAT, ACT, & SAT Subject Tests-Most four year colleges require that a student take either the SAT or the ACT. The SAT is offered seven times a year and students choose when they want to take the test. Register at www.collegeboard.org/SAT.
-Many colleges super score, which means they take the top SAT Reading and top SAT Math score and/or best ACT composite. Because of this students take the test multiple times. Although there are a number of suggested strategies, one that is recommended by a number educators is to take the test twice during the Spring of the Junior year and once, if needed, during the fall of the Senior year. Khan Academy is a free online learning site to do SAT prep.
-There is no harm with a student taking the SAT as a Sophomore, however, the student should plan on taking the PSAT in the fall of the Junior year regardless of when the SAT is taken. The National Merit Scholarship Program (PSAT/NMSQT) is only offered to Juniors taking the PSAT.
-The SAT Subject Test is also offered seven times during the course of the school year. Many of the more selective schools require this test. If a student is interested in a school that is asking for this test, the student should register using the same process used to take the SAT -register at www.collegeboard.org/SAT. Each test is one hour long.
-The ACT is another test used by colleges to assess whether a student is a good match for a school. If you are interested in taking the ACT, register at www.act.org.Lenape High School CEEB code- 310762
